Trust and security are the key components of the Information Society. Security experts with up-to-date know-how across IT, management, and law are in great demand. Especially in view of the need for enhanced security as rapid technical advances pose greater threats to the safety of data transfer, storage, and archiving. Our full-time degree programme majors on in-depth study and specialisation across IT security. Topics include information management, digital identities, secure software engineering, network security, law, and ethics. The main focus of this degree programme is on practical training as well as independent and systematic work with an emphasis on the development of communication skills.
